3-day hike in the Adirondack Mountains
Finally back to the Adirondacks of Northern NY after not being able to get out at all last year. I was just dying to get out to the mountains again! Had planned a couple of trips during my recent 3 week vacation but we were rained out. And my mom ended up having to work after securing the days off. So this ended up being a last minute solo hike on a narrow window of what was predicted to be a few decent weather days. I'd leave before dawn the first morning (3hr drive to the mountains), hike all day, tent that night on the trail, hike and tent the second day, and the third I'd head back home after a full day of hiking. The trip started on the 5th of July so the area was a lot more busy than usual, though with all the horror stories of how crowded the High Peaks area is during popular summer...
Baytown Bud Heatwave 5 miler
What better way is there to celebrate July 4th than to go run 5 miles and then compete in a sausage eating contest? Well that's what I did yesterday. In order for me to be entered in the race my running group the Golden Triangle Strutters had to get in the top 4 spots for the most members participating in the race. It was a close race but we were able to secure a 4th place spot.
So to the race. I was feeling good with my running since I've actually been training and I was excited to go out there and try to get a good time. My goal was to run it in less than an hour, which is a 12 min pace or better. During the first mile...

Any way you look at them, Jake Brown's feet are wicked tough.
Shoeless since departing Huntington Beach, California, in early March, Brown has run eastward across mountains, through deserts, on sandy trails and along concrete interstates.
Against the relentless pounding — sometimes 40 miles a day or more — the soles of his feet have become thick, hardened calluses. They've deflected broken glass and sharp stones and turned deep brown from constant exposure to the sun.
On Tuesday we caught up with Brown, 27, in Carthage on his...
Fairfield Half Marathon – 2015
By Barefoot Gentile
Well here it is the Fairfield half marathon, the most consistent post on this blog. This was my 8th half marathon, all barefoot except for the first one.
Let’s start with training, or lack of. The formula stayed the same, running 3 times a week with the long run on the weekend, it’s how I run normally. I just like to plan out the long runs accordingly, I can easily to do that without a plan. I was averaging about 15 miles per week, for 12 weeks, not much. I got in two 10 milers as well.
It poured all night before but luckily the rain held off for the race, the temperature was much lower than previous years. Usually it would be 80 degrees at the 8:15AM start, this year it was about 60 degrees and overcast, actually perfect running weather.
I started the race at an 8:00 MP pace, way too fast. I never even...
